Officials of the WHCRWA will increase their rates on January 1st by $0.25 per 1,000 gallons. The new WHCRWA fee will be $4.35 per 1,000 gallons of water used. This fee is passed through to all MUD 208 customers and is specifically itemized in your monthly water bill. This rate increase will show up for your February water usage (~March 1st bill). The money collected is paid to the WHCRWA and is not part of our MUD’s operational budget. Please remember that the WHCRWA is not part of the Harris County government and gets none of its funds from Harris County property tax, nor does it have any taxing authority. All of its funding for the entire project is derived from the fee on water usage.
